Many of the roads across Nevada are large highways that are fairly straight. This is not the only type of road though. There are also valleys and rural areas which can have some narrow and windy turns.
When the angle of a turn is severe enough, it may be impossible to see what’s coming in the opposite direction. These types of turns are commonly referred to as blind corners.
Why are blind corners so dangerous?
When you’re operating your vehicle in a straight and open space, it’s much more likely that you’ll be able to see hazards and avoid them. On a blind corner, you won’t be able to see some hazards until the very last minute. For instance, if a car has strayed onto your side of the road, a head-on collision is very likely. These types of crashes generate a tremendous impact and they are often fatal.
Full beam headlights
Blind turns become even more dangerous at nighttime. To counter poor visibility, drivers frequently use full beam headlights. However, they are supposed to turn the full beams off at blind corners. If a road user neglects to do this, they could temporarily blind you with the glare from their headlights, causing you to run off of the road.
You can only control your own actions and not those of other road users. If the negligence of another driver has caused you serious injuries, then you may be entitled to legal compensation. Seeking further guidance on the matter can help to put your mind at ease.
